Soul Whispers

When we feel a whisper, a calling within us to expand calls it can feel scary and even way beyond our capabilities. This can trigger the mind to look for ways to pull out. The thought of pulling away from this calling can cause anguish because we truly know that is not what is being asked of us. We are being called to expand not contract! So, it is that I have come to realise even more deeply that it has only ever about surrendering to those Soul whispers — to our Soul calling.

As Soul is the ‘Driver’ not the ‘Rider’ we are never taking our Soul for a spin. It is always the other way around. It knows where we are going and the best way to get there. We don’t need to get in the way by giving instructions. You know that irritating back seat ‘driver’ that won’t shut up? Well that’s us in control mode!

If this level of surrender feels scary, too big and intimidating we can chunk it down. We can simply ask to be shown the next step, not the full vision of its final completion. I know I have in the past been guilty of wanting to know the entire picture in technicolour.

Just ask for the next step, and take that step. Then ask to be shown the next and on and on. This can be an obvious or subtle unfolding. We can mistakenly feel that it is lacking in its simplicity. Yet it never, ever is!

For within the Soul calling is the full power of creation. It cannot fail. It may and mostly does look different to what the mind expected it should. Yet it is always grander, more expansive and fulfilling than what we could possibly make up from a separated mind.

To live and embody this way, we need to recognise our indivisibility from Soul. We, simply cannot be separate. We are designed to operate as one — in the flow and flowing. We then experience our magnificence and need never ask the question: ‘how am I going to do this?’

We will know that of course we can – and in fact we already are! As we cannot escape our Soul Presence, let us work in harmony with its elegance.

So often we are lead to believe that our visions, goals and aspirations must be the equivalent of climbing Mt Everest, an Olympian feat or world changing. This is the mind tricking us into believing that it knows best, but most of all keeping it small as it seems it can’t be done.

Yet to expand our vision from a limited version to a Soul aligned one we need to invoke the power of Soul aligned Intention. We do not need to know exactly what the greater vision is. We need only intend that we are open to receive and live this expanded version.

See intention is the driving force, the catalyst for its manifestation.  And as we receive Soul impulses via our inner guidance and become trusting of this guidance we easily take action on these inspirations. We then dance with Soul and are guided by Soul into deeper acceptance of how magnificent we truly are.

Whatever that stirring, calling and whispers know that they are there as the  signposts to the expression of our unique Soul presence and purpose.

No matter how crazy the world is our greatest challenge is to surrender to our Soul calling and simply say yes! There isn’t anything else to do except be in a divine dance with how it is calling us Now!

 

 

‘Being ‘You’ Now’

I have been contemplating the idea how simply living in this ever-changing world is a profound challenge to our sense of self. We are bombarded on a daily basis with information and images telling us how we should and shouldn’t be. It can be a challenge to come back to our inner knowing, our inner compass, the truth of who we are. Yet this is our true north star.

 

Have you pondered on how you arrived at and became who you are in this moment in time?

Magical Mystery Tour of Life

Do you sometimes feel as if your life is a magical mystery tour? One in which you are on a ride to some unknown destination? I know that I often feel as if I have a ticket to ride; yet have no idea where I am going!

See; the mystery of following one’s Soul Calling is that it never follows a linear pathway. There is no road map that marks every twist and turn. Instead what we are asked to do is to develop greater trust in ourselves.

This can be challenging. What if we get it wrong? What if we are on the wrong road? What is it going to look like?

 

One thing for certain is that it is never how or what we imagined it would be like. It is never what our small mind would plan or think it ‘should’ be. Without a doubt, it is always greater!

I am finding it fascinating to witness the Greta Thunberg’s of the world express their heart centred Soul calling. We can observe that Greta and many others like her, do not necessarily set out to achieve what is unfolding through them. They seem to simply be in the momentum of their Soul Calling.

We are not all destined to ignite a world wide movement or speak at the UN. Yet we all have the capacity to set our course to be as Soul Centred as possible. Our intention is the key, always. No matter how mysterious and uncertain life seems to be; we can always align with Soul and have this be our guiding light.

Our Souls will is to shine light in the world. This will expand our awareness and this expanded awareness will bring greater opportunity to express ourselves in truth, in whichever way that looks like. Our Soul has this in the bag, so to speak, we just need to get out of the way!

How do we achieve this? I feel that this piece below from the Elohim, says it all in such a beautiful way…

Are you in the ‘Spiritual Closet’?

What is this ‘Spiritual Closet’? And are you hanging out in it? If so how do we ‘get out’ so to speak? Let us start by defining what the closet is and to do this I am borrowing words from the Sirius Collective on the subject…

 

“The spiritual closet is a containment of sorts — a way to contain your essence. And the only reason that you ever put yourself in there, is to apply the brakes. Yes, you simply want to put the brakes on, in your life! And once in there you find that there is no tomorrow, no expanding until you have found the lock and key to free yourself from this self imposed prison.”

It can be hard to follow one’s Soul calling

It sure can be hard, even painful to follow the calling of one’s Soul. Oh yes, I hear you say!

For myself and so many people I have spoken to of late have found this year to be one in which:  ‘I was going along with grand intentions, all was coming into alignment, yet bang’... all of a sudden it stopped. What the heck!

Does this sound familiar? 

For me it was simply that everything I thought I was being called to create and manifest would continue to expand. Yet it came to a full stop! All of a sudden, it became obvious to me that taking no action was my action! I am talking in terms of my group work. I had many ideas, was feeling the love and the flow, yet  suddenly I was being guided not to make a time for the next one… not another one or any one at all.

What does it take to live as a Soul Centred being?

What does it take to live as a Soul Centred being – to live life from and within its perspective?

We all feel deep down that there is a greater purpose for our lives and seek to discover it. We all desire to feel aligned with our true purpose, to find ways to expand our relationships and authentically express ourselves in the world.

Yet life does not come with an instruction manual. There are no 10 steps for the Spiritual Path, no handbook that clearly states some special rules that will lead us to Nirvana.

Yet what is true is that we are all unique and interconnected aspects of an infinite, abundant and ever-expanding Universe. We can never be separate from our Soul. Yes, never separate…simply not possible! We are Guided by Soul because it is our essence. We only have to remember and align ourselves through our inner guidance system.

What if Life Is Meant To Be Simple?  

What if Life Is Meant To Be Simple? Have you ever noticed that your mind can be racing with many thoughts, many of which seem to contradict each other? Conflicting ideas, images, philosophies and a myriad of ways to improve the human condition abound in this world. All jostling for our attention.

Yet what if life is supposed to be more simple than we are led to believe? What if it is far more simple than the complexity our minds have made into somewhat of a reality for us?

Embracing the Power of Change


Embracing the Power of Change. I have been thinking a lot about the word ‘change’ of late. It has been said that change is the one constant in life and yet sometimes it feels as if it happens too fast, too much and all too soon since the last one! Yet change is simply an opportunity for a change in perspective. Sounds simple when put that way, yet it can feel far from simple when our whole perspective of the world changes. When the veil is lifted even the slightest and the curtains drawn back to let in more light, the way we were no longer serves and we are standing and operating from a whole new paradigm. This serves to be the next starting point to our next shift in perspective and so the never ending flow occurs.

Time to Embrace our Perfect Imperfections

Time to Embrace our Perfect Imperfections. The primary purpose of inner Guidance is to expand and evolve out of our limited belief structures. It is beyond the limitations we have placed on ourselves. Therefore it is not wise to restrict the flow of our guidance by boxing it into our old limited belief ‘system’.

I recall many years ago feeling frustrated at not getting something in particular that I wanted in life and asking my Guides how I could ‘get’ it. I can honestly say I was unhappy with the answers I was getting. I was pulled up by my husband, the wisest person I know, who said to me in no uncertain terms –‘that my guides are not my slaves’.  So true! They are offering us wisdom and an expanded view of our reality that we may come to understand and live as a Soul centered human. Not an egocentric existence!

Playing With Change

PLAYING WITH CHANGE. One of the things that I have been noticing of late is that so many of us are in a state of frustration with wanting radical change both on a personal and collective level. And we want that change now!

The Guides teach us that we are all interconnected and as such can never be separate from a never-ending flow of expansion. Does it always look and feel that way? No! The ego is impatient and wants everything at once and it lets us know that change is not happening nearly fast enough.
